Strategic alliances with the world's major vendors

Partnership with Red Hat

Fujitsu and Red Hat have entered into a global partnership to provide and ensure mission-critical Linux solutions. As part of this endeavor, a Joint Development Organization has been created at Red Hat in the U.S. Here we implement functional enhancements to the Linux operating system for reliability and large system scalability, enabling the creation of a center of excellence in mission critical open systems support and assistance.

Partnership with Microsoft

Fujitsu and Microsoft have strategic partnerships covering product development, platform integration, and support for customer requiring open systems and mission-critical applications. We are involved in joint projects to enhance Windows Server 2003 as well as the next-generation of Windows operating systems with functional enhancements for mission-critical application.

Partnership with Intel

Fujitsu and Intel work together to develop servers for mission-critical (MC) applications requiring mainframe-class reliability. Focused on the world's high-end server market, we seek to expand open system's mission critical deployment through joint initiatives to develop the servers and software required for maximum reliability, availability, and expandability. These initiatives embrace Fujitsu's technologies including interconnects, clustering, autonomous systems, and grid computing. In collaboration with primary independent vendors, we are also promoting the optimization of Linux applications on Fujitsu-made/Intel-based systems, making use of Intel's wide selection of software tools.

Spread and development of Itanium 2-based solutions

Fujitsu is a founding member and active participant of the Itanium Solutions Alliance, a global alliance working to extend the scope and availability of Itanium solutions. We work within the community to ensure high quality and best in class reliability while supporting and spreading the development of Itanium 2 solutions. This global community is organized by hardware, operating system, and vendor applications. It enables Fujitsu to fully direct and validate high reliability solutions well before systems deployment.
